Clearly Besotted June Teasers Day 2

Hi everyone. Hope you’re having a lovely day. It’s Day 2 and we’re heading out into the garden. I love planting things and watching them grow. When I got the set ‘I Dig You’, I envisaged a raised bed full of veggies.

This card looks like it might be hard to replicate, but it was really simple to construct. Here’s a photo of the basic tent fold.

It was as simple as chopping two same sized triangles off the bottom right and top left of the card. I added the lines to create a dimensional box. Here’s where the problems started- I didn’t actually plan it properly, I just kinda made it up as I went on. I started off by colouring and cutting out the veggies.

I added lots of darker brown and details using Prismacolor pencils but I hadn’t thought about the soil and what colour that might be. I’d got some old wood effect paper so started to build up the box with strips of paper and surrounded pieces of dark brown cardstock with those strips.

I ended up colouring over the lighter areas with darker coloured alcohol ink markers. I added pieces of dark cardstock around the edges and slotted in a few vegetables at the side. I didn’t know what veg was the leafy one so made it into a chilli plant. Granted, you can’t actually see potatoes whilst they’re growing in the ground, but hey, this is a fun card and I’m sure the recipient won’t mind!

The picture above gives a close-up of the way I’ve added the strips to help give it some dimension. It was certainly fun to make and I can’t wait to see what my teamies and guest designers come up with today too!

    My eyes cannot see past that it’s not an actual box! That’s amazing, Keren! I love all the details you added and those veggies look good enough to eat! Fantastic! xx

    I thought it was an actual box! So fun! You might have made it up as you went along but the final result looks fantastic. And artistic licence is a wonderful thing, I like that your potatoes grow on top! Brilliant card! Xx

    Oh my, what a garden you’ve created. Love all those sweet fussy cut veg. You must have a very sure hand and the patience of Job. An amazing card in every way.
